Angelica Garcia @ Boot & Saddle | Wednesday, April 19
Keep an eye on Angelica Garcia. She’s a new kid on the block, but she’s got some vocal swagger and a big, bad blues guitar. Check it:

 

Hurray for the Riff Raff @ World Café Live | Friday, April 21
Alynda Segarra returns with Navigator, a gorgeously idiosyncratic album that pushes her Americana sound into new territory. This time she mines her Nuyorican roots and comes up with something theatrical and engaging in new ways. I’ve seen Hurray for the Riff Raff a few times and they always bring it. Read more »

Pile @ First Unitarian Church | Wednesday, April 12
Beloved Boston punks Pile return with A Hairshirt of Purpose, the latest testament to frontman Rick Maguire’s sonic restlessness. “Worms” feels like some lost Temple of the Dog track but dreamier. “Hissing for Peace” is more of a messy, righteous rocker. “Rope’s Length” starts clangy and builds to a roar.

With rockabilly/retro grooves, sharp guitars and those powerhouse vocals, Portland rocker Sallie Ford returns with a new record, Soul Sick. Get there in time for another dynamite singer, Austin’s Molly Burch. Read more »

Asian Women on the Telephone @ Philadelphia Record Exchange | Wednesday, March 22
This Russian avant-garde/experimental band is known back home for its bizarre performances and freaky costumes. Their rock sound is moved by odd currents of feedback, throbbing noise, animal vocalizations and a general feeling of asymmetry. A rare treat you may never see again.

Stef Chura @ Boot & Saddle | Wednesday, March 22
Detroit rocker Stef Chura makes catchy, loopy “light grunge” that Lucy Dacus fans might appreciate. A little retro, a little thrift-store chic. Lots to sing along to. It’s a good time. Read more »
